We eat there on occasion and have never had a problem with anything. I would ask about the oil they use at each location just to make sure.

I had a friend react to something after eating KFC. She is not PA, but something started making her throat close up and she had to go tearing into a nearby pharmacy and take a swig of benadryl right then and there. She went to her allergist, who wrote a letter to KFC asking them to list their ingredients....no response, and it's been about 8 weeks. Nice helpful people. Since the doctor has no idea what she reacted to, he doesn't know what to test her for. She carries an epipen with her to restaurants now. I won't give any restaurant my business if they will not be open about their ingredients.

Hi - I worked at KFC a long time ago in 1988-1989. I remember the powdered mashed potatoes mix had sulfites listed in the ingredients. I don't know if it still does, but a lot of people have reactions to sulfites (a food preservative). We never eat there now, because my daughter is allergic to chicken, so it would be rather pointless to go there now. -Kay

We took william to KFC for the first time recently as he can now eat cooked egg. We checked throughly with the dim witted staff (sigh , but got the help we wanted soon enough!!) but we forgot in our hurry to make sure that the food was nut free that william does not eat any food with black pepper in , and in fact has had reactions in the past to mustard. I can not really see a conncection to this with regard to his peanut allergy. He can eat cooked sesame seeds no problem. So why the reaction to mustard?
As he spat out the popcorn chicken accross the room and washed out his mouth with water, we decided that macdonald's is once again the only restaurant that we can take william !!!
Still he was happy with the spiderman toy.....
ah well, back to happy meals !!!!

Williamsmummy... You make laugh [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I lived in England (Norwich to be exact) for a year when I was 17. I ate a McDonalds a few times while there - the only place I could go and get rootbeer [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
We have eaten at KFC a few times without problems - but you never know how things are run with different managers. The Olive Garden near us was always good about checking ingredients for us, but I read a post on the board where someone was told from the Olive Garden head office that it would be wise not to eat at their restaurants. I now don't just because it seems to me that they don't really want my business.

My son Ricky has gotten sick three different times after eating at KFC. The first time we did not know he had a peanut allegry. He was 2 1/2 years old. So we thought that he had a flu. The second time we knew that he had a peanut allegry so we made sure to ask about the oil or any other peanut products. He got sick again. We though that the store was not cooking the chicken properly. So we tried one last time at a different store. He had the same reaction. Keep in mind this was over a 1.5 year period. He is now 5 years old and has not been to KFC for 2.5 years just to be on the safe side.

My son also had a reaction from KFC. I called the store and they read me the ingredients on the fries. There was a word listed in the ingredients (something like "batter" or "coating") which couldn't be identified any further. I can't remember the exact word, but I remember asking, "well, what's THAT?" and they had no idea.
